    Shadowing a Tracker Fund? 8th Oct 19 at 9:55 PM
    If I were to copy the percentages of investments in a tracker fund, would that save or cost me more money? Maybe tracker funds are constantly being modified and I wouldn't be able to keep up anyway?

    Its perfectly sensible to replicate the main holdings but then deciding to actively under/overweight certain holdings, and doing the same with dividend re-investments.I quite like the FTSE 100, save for the tobacco, consumer staples and oil sectors. Same for the S&P less all the frothy tech stocks.

    What a coincidence. I've done similar with the S&P but only holding the frothy tech stocks
    Please dont criticise my spelling. It's excellent. Its my typing that's bad.
